Default Club car charger turns on then shuts off

Hey guys,

I have searched the forum for an answer, but keep finding other problems. Here is mine:

Bought new Trojan Blacks and replaced all battery wires with 4 gauge. 48v cart 8v batteries. Cart will run; however charger will click on, go to max amps for about 30 seconds then click off.

It does not charge the batteries.

Any ideas?

Try searching youtube or just google it, had same problem with mine and if you take all the screws out of it and look towards the back of it at a 4x4 black box....that should hopefully help you....

Make sure you reconnected the red wire coming from the charger socket to the correct battery. It will also act that way if you are trying to charge 40v.

The obc hole is a hole through the on board computer which the main neg wire must go through in order for the charger to work. The path of the main neg to the rear to get to the controller.

Problem was that when I upgraded the wires to 4 gauge, I could not fit the neg wire through the hole that I did not realize did something......I just re-hooked the original wire up, along with the 4 gauge that goes around the hole, and......charging now. Thanks again all.
